Samsung Brazil Caught Using Stock Photos to Promote Galaxy A8 (2018) Selfie Camera

Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) was launched in December as the company’s first handset to sport a dual selfie camera setup. While two sensors at the front are being marketed for enhancing your self-portraits, Samsung Brazil has been spotted using some stock photos from Getty Images to promote the frontal camera setup of the Galaxy A8 (2018). The stock photos that the local division of Samsung had professedly posted on its official Twitter account were found to be captured back in 2015. The company eventually even deleted the tweets carrying the photos in question to silently prove its fault.

Twitter user with @feliperas username noticed that Samsung’s Brazilian division was using two stock photos from Getty Images to promote the selfie functionality of the Galaxy A8 (2018). The division posted the photos through the Samsung Brazil account on Twitter along with the hashtag Galaxy A8. One of the images was uploaded on stock photo site Getty Images in April 2015 – over two years before the formal launch of the Galaxy A8 (2018).

After being called out, Samsung’s Brazilian division said that the spotted photos were captured internally. The division, however, in a later tweet highlighted that while many of the photos it posted were taken using Samsung phones, some of them, like the ones in question, were intended to express how the photos taken using the phone will appear. Instead of explicitly confirming the fallacy, it eventually deleted the tweets carrying the stock photos.

To recall, the Galaxy A8 (2018) debuted with a dual selfie camera setup that includes a 16-megapixel sensor along with an f/1.9, fixed focus lens and an 8-megapixel sensor along with an f/1.9 aperture. The two sensors are powered by preloaded Live Focus feature that is designed to adjust the Bokeh effect even after capturing the self-portraits. On the back, there is a 16-megapixel sensor along with an f/1.7 aperture lens. The rear camera sensor is supported by video digital image stabilisation (VDIS) and has features such as hyperlapse and a Food mode. The smartphone features a 5.6-inch full-HD+ (2220×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display with an 18.5:9 aspect ratio and is powered by an octa-core SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of onboard storage.

As AndroidAuthority notes, Samsung’s isn’t the only smartphone vendor that is misleading customers by posting stock images. Huawei in 2016 also misled the public by posting photos from a Canon DSLR camera that were pretended to be captured from the Huawei P9. Likewise, Nokia in 2012 used a setup to falsely market the optical image stabilisation of the Lumia 920.

Priyanka Chopra, Back In Mumbai, Gives Major Gym Inspo In New Selfie

New Delhi: 

Aren’t you at the gym? Well, we already are. Priyanka Chopra, who is back at work in Mumbai, is giving us some major fitness goals through her recent Instagram post taken at a gym. Priyanka touched down in Delhi from Singapore last afternoon and in the evening, she was spotted at Mumbai’s Kalina airport with her mom Madhu Chopra. The 36-year-old actress appears to have started filming her upcoming Hindi film The Sky Is Pink and in between, she took off time to sweat it out at the gym. “In between sets,” she captioned her post, adding the hashtags ‘Selfie First’ and ‘Training Day.’

Take a look at Priyanka’s gym selfie here.



Priyanka has been shuttling between India and the US off late. Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink is her first Hindi film in two years. In The Sky Is Pink, she co-stars with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. The film is reportedly based on motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary.

Salman Khan’s Bharat was also the other film Priyanka had signed. However, she dropped out of the project. Director Ali Abbas Zafar announced Priyanka’s exit via a tweet.

Besides her films, Priyanka is trending a great deal for her rumoured engagement with American singer Nick Jonas. Priyanka apparently quit Bharat as a wedding is on the cards for them (not announced officially though).

Priyanka Chopra has wrapped the last season of her American TV show Quantico. Isn’t It Romantic? and A Kid Like Jake are her two upcoming Hollywood film. Meanwhile, she had also reportedly been approached for Cowboy Ninja Viking opposite Chris Pratt.

How Sweet Is Virat Kohli’s Caption For Selfie With ‘Bestest’ Anushka Sharma

New Delhi: 

Virat Kohli shared yet another selfie with the “bestest” Anushka Sharma and no points for guessing that it’s viral already! Shared late of Friday night, the photo has garnered over a million (yes, a million) ‘likes’ just overnight. Meanwhile, as is the case with all Virat Kohli posts featuring his wife Anushka Sharma, Virat’s Instafam can’t get over how adorable these two are. “Couple goals,” is the phrase that was repeated in the comments section. The selfie appears to have been shared from the couple’s night out as this is how Virat captioned it: “Meal with the bestest.” Anushka has accompanied Virat to London, where the Indian cricket team is playing an ODI series against England.

How sweet is this!


Meanwhile, Virat Kohli is filling-up his Instagram feed with more and more selfies with Anushka , sending the Internet into a meltdown of sorts every time. On Thursday, look what we chanced upon on his Insta feed – a backseat selfie of the duo, which now has over 3 million ‘likes’.


A post shared by Virat Kohli (@virat.kohli) on


And then, earlier this month, Virat and Anushka were spotted chilling like this! It was after all Virat’s “day out with the beauty!”


Well, if you think all the credit for sharing photos of Virushka goes to the Indian captain, that’s not true. Because even if not as frequently as Virat but Anushka does share her favourite clicks on Instagram. This entry is from earlier this week:


And this one was shared earlier this month. Have you seen?


When in England, Anushka also hung out with Shikhar Dhawan’s family and Sakshi, MS Dhoni’s wife.




Anushka and Virat had a destination wedding in December last year, a close-knit ceremony which was attended just by their respective families and close friends. Anushka completed her shooting schedule for Zero before she took off for London. She now has Sui Dhaaga with Varun Dhawan in the line-up.

OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T Get OxygenOS 5.0.4 Update With July Security Patch, Improved Selfie Quality

OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, on their way to obsolescence, have received the latest OxygenOS 5.0.4 software update. This version brings the much-anticipated July 2018 Android security update to the two smartphones, so does it bring bug fixes for the native camera app and two third-party apps – namely, WhatsApp and Snapchat. To recall, earlier this month, the company announced that the last stable update for the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T would be coming later this month. This is not that update, the company clarified. The company states that the OxygenOS 5.0.4 update comes with the July security patch, but the setting incorrectly reflects security patch as June due to an incorrect string (typo). File size of the update is around 95MB. The OTA update will be available under Settings > System Updates.

As per the changelog reported via a forum post, the OxygenOS 5.0.4 update brings improved image quality to the selfie camera and a fix for manual ISO setting issue of third-party camera apps. Apart from that, it comes with a fix for parallel WhatsApp crash issue and a fix for front camera zoom-in issues on Snapchat.

“This OTA will have a staggered rollout, the OTA will be received by a limited number of users today and will have a broader rollout in a few days after making sure there are no critical bugs, so using VPN to download this build might not work as the rollout is not based on regions and is randomly pushed out to a limited number of devices,” said Manu J, Staff Member, Beta Program and Developer Relations, OnePlus.

As for this not being the last stable update, a OnePlus staff member states, “Hey everyone, this won’t be the last update for OnePlus 3 and 3T users. We fully understand you guys are eagerly waiting for some big changes. Please be patient and relax, everything will be alright. We will share more details very soon.”

For OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T users running an open beta version of OxygenOS, a fresh install will be required, including a complete cache and data wipe.

To recap, the two phones had received the OxygenOS 5.0.3 update back in May this year. The update brought features such as Face Unlock, a refined shelf UI design, new design for app shortcuts, and pop-up actions when an app is long pressed.

On the rear, the Vivo Nex comes with a dual camera setup featuring a 12-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, 4-axis OIS, and dual-core tech for 24 million picture elements.
